Good day Piper... I have a neighbor in Law enforcement. He seems to think that CCW will pass in Illinois, However their will be many restrictions in and around Cook County(Chicago). I say all or nothing. I turn the news on every day and see death and mayhem as a result of irresponsible gun owners and thugs.Congrats on your purchase. Just waiting to see how Illinois is going to write up its new CCW law, as restrictive as NJ or liberal Vermont. At least you'll be out of the dark ages.
